Strange, I don’t feel very fulfilled
Last updated at 13:50, Monday, 28 November 2011
Jargon is all too familiar. The person who used to be a bin man is now a waste disposal operative.
The lifeguard is a wet leisure assistant and the cleaner is an environment improvement technician.
Some other examples which may or not be genuine: vision clearance engineer? Window cleaner.
Stock replenishment advisor? Shelf stacker.
Revenue protection officer? Ticket inspector.
On a similar theme, a reader has contacted Reiver regarding a letter she received from Lloyds TSB. The return envelope was addressed to the ‘Savings Fulfilment Centre’.
Reiver can only wonder what a savings fulfilment centre would have been called in the old days.
But when interest rates are at an historic low, is it possible to have savings and feel fulfilled?
